The Arrow Video FrightFest 2021 team today revealed the line-up for their online edition, which will take place from 1 to 5 September, two days after the London-based main event. It includes an extensive selection of highlights like Night Drive, Ultrasound and Sweetie, You Won't Believe It, along with a few extras, such as the first chance to see Chad Crawford Kinkle's Dementer in the UK.

The five day long event will also include an early chance to see some highly anticipated trailers, and perhaps a preview or two. The teams behind some of the films will be online to talk about their work and take questions from viewers.

"FrightFest will always see the collective theatrical viewing experience as central to our mission," said festival director Alan Jones. "Nothing can replace the anticipatory buzz waiting for the house lights to dim in a crowded cinema, or catching up with festival friends from far-flung corners of the world. But now we relish the prospect of commitment to virtual programming and how it will complement, enhance, and expand the reach of our in-person programming. So, for the first time in FrightFest’s always forward-thinking history, we have embraced the newly minted hybrid format to satisfy our past, present and future community."
